saving up my orbs for the surprise hero fest banner during golden week probs. I predict that one to be ridiculously good, if the other hero fests are anything to go by.

I never thought I'd see the day. Not going to preorder though since NISA's handling the localization.

Unfortunately, the maps in XBC2 aren't nearly as good as they were in XBCs 1 and X. Granted, it does start off well enough, but most of the later areas are basically a few massive empty fields or a bunch of narrow corridor dungeons.

That is really disheartening.

You remember how that real estate bubble burst in 2008 and peoples' lives collapsed all over the country?  The school loan bubble is headed in that exact same direction.

If it weren't for the whole lives-collapsing thing I'd almost be glad to see that happen.  Biggest scam ever.

It's almost equivalent to the subprime mortgage scam where you're promised a Ferrari dream at a Chevy price. 

But quietly, there are colleges out there really bucking the system.  Like Berea College with its innovative tuition free model.

We just shot a little promotional movie for an upcoming guild event to recruit new members, and it's basically a few of us doing our thing badly on purpose as a friendly challenge to newcomers. "Think you can do better? Come visit blablabla." Since people find me weirdly approachable (I can walk around with my half-asleep zombie gaze and headphones, and strangers will still aproach me to tell me all about how the government is conspiring against them), I agreed to fuck up some archery. I hadn't shot barebow in ages, so I grabbed the lightest training bow we had and... actually did pretty okay during my warm-up shots. Not good. So then I just kinda stopped aiming and did worse. The plan was to do the third and final arrow a couple of times to get the best worst shot.

That's when everything went perfect/absolutely wrong. I haven't been sleeping well the past couple of weeks. I was tired, I had an headache and I just wanted to be done. Muscle memory took over and I fired. Great, right? Except that muscle memory is relevant to my own bow, which weighs like 2,5kg with stabilisation on it and has a draw weight of ~28 pounds. This was a piece of wood with a string we give to grannies. I overshot the target, the arrow bounced off the wall and with a giggly non-vocal 'oh shit' I turned towards the camera and said my lines and I said them well.

The persoon shooting the little promo was very happy with the result. If the other archers see this, and they will, I won't be able to live this down for a long time.

I do not know how to feel about this.

I'm probably going to lose some more sleep.

Awesome.

After many years of hearing about Breaking Bad and how great it is, I decided to start watching the show about a week and a half ago.

I am now finished with the show, all 62 episodes. I haven't went through a show that quickly in a long while.

Maybe I need some more time to process it, but for now I think I'll say it was one of the best, if not the best show I've ever seen.

New Calendar is up. Two new New Heroes Banners and not a Special Heroes Banner in sight. I'm alright with this (watch them be nothing but alts...). Other than that though, there's not a whole lot going on. Three quests, no VG, the T_T+ and Grand Conquest, Tappa Tappa Tower, two GHeBs (hi Saias) and a ReBHeB, and whatever Golden Week shenanigans end up as (not that it likely matters since it'll probably remain JP only just like last year's). To hell with the Promos', like hell am I forsaking F2P by now.

Meanwhile, I lol'd at clearing the latest Water Blessed Garden in one try with a team of Fjorm, Delthea, Summer Tiki and Olivia (such an annoying map, especially with Infernal inflated stats). Also cleared a bunch of Elite GHeB quests. Most notably, F. Robin's Calvary quest and both Water and Earth Teams for Legion and Clarrise (it helps a ton that you only need to clear R2 Elite GHeBs on Lunatic and not Infernal like R1's).

As for luck. I completely struck out on Thracia's banner. Freebie was a 3 star Chrom (wrong lord) and the rest were 3 or 4 star jobbers as well (Oscar was the best pull).


Edit: Add Ursula's Armor Emblem quest. Was a total pain in the ass until I remembered that I now am no longer restricted to only Red DC. And thus did Male Grima save Christmas.

The music does own though.
